Hot as Hades…Soup Anyway

Hot as Hades…Soup Anyway

chicken soup with purple hull peasI love soup.  There is something about a bowl of soup that is comforting, nourishing, and just aaauuuggghhh….Did I mention I love soup?  And did I also mention it is almost 100 degrees today which means it’s about 115 with the heat index, oh yes and it feels like 100% humidity?  Well it is but I’m making soup anyway.  This is also one of my stretch your budget recipes.  I made a broth the previous day from 2 saved chicken carcasses.  I’ve really been focusing on saving the meat from the remainder of my chickens as I always get one more meal out of it.  There is also something about using every part of the animal that’s given it’s life for us.  I do not like to waste a single bit to honor that life as much as possible!  I know it can be a difficult thing for some out there to handle raw meat.  I understand!  In a world where everything we buy can potentially come already prepared where we just open, pour into a pan, heat and serve, we can have very little connection to our food.  So much so that we forget it doesn’t just come from the grocery store!  This has been a reconnection process for me allowing me to take a moment to appreciate what my food truly began as and where it really comes from. 

Ok, sorry about that!  I will head off to the soup now.  It was lovely…
